This past year, Prophet Bobby Conner said that the greatest harvest in Canada will come out of East Hastings Vancouver. Fast forward to October, Jon and two others headed to East Hastings to minister to those living on the streets of East Hastings. Out of that mission came a deep conviction to return there regularly to see lives transformed by the power of the gospel. In February 2019, Harvest Culture is going back again and we need the hands and feet of Christ to help us. We would love to be able to take everyone, however we are only looking for about 10 people.
The requirements for this mission are:
Be available February 6-11, 2019
Be free and fully recovered from any substance abuse
Be able to confidently approach the lost with love (this trip is not an opportunity for you to learn how to evangelize)
Book your flights by January 15, 2019.
Have a home church that you regularly attend and are plugged in to.
The registration cost of this trip is going to be $250 per person, which will include accommodations (a nice airbnb), transportation while in BC, and your breakfast.
Additionally you will be responsible for booking and paying for your own flights (swoop is a discount airline that we would recommend), lunch and dinner. (some dinners may be provided but not guaranteed). You can do some fundraising for the trip yourself, however Harvest Culture will not be covering costs at this time.
East Hastings is not a typical downtown scene you might normally see. People have said "it is something that you see out of a movie". Those on the streets of E.H are usually high, drunk, depressed, suicidal, over-dosing and lost. That is why we require anyone who is wanting to come to be free and fully recovered from any substance abuse. It can potentially trigger someone who is not recovered and we do not want that to happen. We also are asking for experienced people in evangelism and what we teach, as this is not your average evangelism "outing". Jon was emotional and heavy upon returning home, having seen the people of East Hastings and the amount of times he saw them shooting up. If you feel that you would not be able to place that burden upon the Lord while with us, we ask that you refrain from submitting a request. There will be another opportunity for you come down the road. In the meantime, we suggest you purchase our School of Evangelism download and join a local outreach group in your area if you haven’t already.
**Submitting this form does not guarantee your spot on this mission. We will prayerfully consider each individual as the Lord leads us.
